After multiple sources reported that Emma Watson was being relentlessly bullied by her classmates at Brown University, the actress says she will be transferring to a different university in the fall.

Vanessa Davies denied reports that the actress was "bullied out" of the Rhode Island university, saying there was no truth in reports by a number of online publications who cited classmates and "insiders".

Davies said Saturday that Watson, who plays Hermione in the wizard movie series, has decided to pursue a different course not offered at Brown.

Davies also added that Watson "has absolutely loved her time at Brown" and that she made a lot of "good friends" there. Which is pretty much what you'd have to say if you were a famous actor who announced you'd be leaving your university in a few months and needed to think of a reason why.

There's no way of knowing if the repeated bullying was the sole reason for the transfer but either way, hopefully she'll have a better time at the yet-to-be-named university of her choice.
